Undefeated junior sides prepare for premiership glory

ALMOST THERE: Singleton Youth Girls deputy captain Ella Radmacher is one of the many club juniors hoping to win their first premiership this weekend.

Three of Singleton’s junior sides will enter this Sunday’s grand finals as favourites thanks to their undefeated records in season 2020.

All three season deciders will take place at Tulkaba Park, home of the Lake Macquarie Football Club.

PROUD COACH: Singleton under-11 coach Simon Trickey is excited for this Sunday’s grand final against Newcastle City.

Under-11 – Singleton vs. Newcastle City (9am start)

Singleton’s impressive under-11 line-up will enter this Sunday’s grand final against Newcastle City having won their past 16 games in a row.

The line-up proved to be a class above Warners Bay in last week’s semi-final when annihilating the Bulldogs 18.19 (127) to 0.1 (1) before a vocal crowd at Feighan Oval.

“Without praising the individuals, we have heaps of new kids who have really strengthened our side this year,” head coach Simon Trickey explained.

“This will be a great day and we can’t wait to get out there.”

The Singleton Youth Girls have had a year to remember with a 10-0 record.

Captained by midfielder Lilly-Jane Williams, who finished runner up in the league best and fairest (10 votes), the Roosterettes have boasted a powerful forward line led by deputy captain Ella Radmacher.

The side’s backline has only conceded seven goals for their entire season (holding all sides scoreless at Rose Point Park).

They enter the season decider after celebrating a 6.13 (49) to 1.1 (7) semi-final win over Warners Bay at Feighan Oval.

“To hold any side to a single goal in a final is a feat to be proud of but the credit has to go to our midfield on Sunday,” head coach Alex Tigani explained.

NEW RECRUIT: Milla Hauville has been a pillar in Singleton’s defence. Cardiff were held scoreless in their last meeting.

“Playing in the October heat has its toll but we finished with 19-2 scoring shots which tells me that our onballers were dominant in the middle.

“An extra goal-kicking session on Wednesday looks to have aided our girls in front of goal as well so this Sunday we hope to hit the scoreboard early and, most importantly, make our parents and supporters proud from start to finish.”

Under-15 (1:30pm start)

Arguably the most impressive result across the region on Sunday took place at Maitland’s Max McMahon Oval when the Warriors thwarted Newcastle City by 92-points.

A joint venture side featuring Singleton players Alex Stafa, Steven Dedini, Seth Kolotchew, Dorian Thornberry, Rywin Nock, Reagan Spicer, Nathan Duff and Chris Almond, the Warriors will take on a Maitland line-up which celebrated an 81-point victory over Terrigal-Avoca in their semi-final.

THE BOYS FROM SINGLETON

The side is coached by football guru Aaron Ford.

Prior to this clash, Cardiff will playoff against Newcastle City in the Under-17 Youth Girls Clash (12pm) while Newcastle City will conclude the day battling Warners Bay in the Under-17 season decider (3:20pm).
